cityofrochesternyMayor Lovely Warren has announced that City of Rochester is partnering with the del Lago Resort & Casino and vRide Inc. to help city residents obtain good-paying jobs at the Seneca County gaming facility by using the City’s new Vanpool Program.
The vanpool program will help connect Rochester-area job seekers to the many opportunities available at del Lago Resort & Casino, which will open its doors on Feb. 1, 2017.
To kick off the partnership and encourage applications, del Lago Resort & Casino is hosting a job fair from 3 to 6 p.m. on Jan. 3 at Rochester’s City Hall Council Chambers, 30 Church St. Room 302A. Available positions include cocktail servers, cooks, cashiers, dishwashers and facilities cleaning (environmental services). Non-tipped positions start at $12 per hour and increase based on experience.
The Vanpool will consist of commuters who voluntarily participate in the rideshare arrangement. The van will make one trip to del Lago Resort & Casino and one trip back to Rochester during the day. Vans will be driven by a volunteer who will also be commuting to work. vRide will provide the van, insurance, maintenance, a ride-matching platform and a designated fuel card for each group. Unlike traditional bus service or a shuttle service, vanpooling is unique because each route is tailored to suit the needs of a specific group of riders. vRide will provide a simple all-inclusive cost per van based on the vehicle type and estimated monthly mileage driven.
The city will subsidize the cost of this service to del Lago Resort & Casino users, with the monthly cost less than $75 each month per rider.
